Lag. Steam is a lag magnet. And I hate how it can't open HL2 right now or any other game. Dammit Steam! Why do you torment me so? --PolishedFragment (talk) 13:34, July 24, 2013 (UTC)Read more >
Hey, I just went and bought Half Life 2 off of Steam! Once I get into the game I'll be able to correct Half Life 2 pages so... yay? --PolishedFragment (talk) 20:54, July 23, 2013 (UTC)Read more >

Hey Half-Life fans!
We recently sat down for a chat with game designer/writer Chris Avellone, and talked about the specifics of making a game set in a post-apocalyptic world. Well known for his work on Fallout 2, Fallout: New Vegas, Knights of the Old Republic II , and Baldur's Gate among many others, he's an authority on what it takes to make a wasteland both scary and appealing. We cover a wide range of games during the discussion, including the Half-Life series, so make sure to check out our Expert Showcase discussion with him below!

Two weeks ago I noticed that the folder in Gmod that named Portal2_Prop was full and I saw many subfolder in it's, one of the folder was named Prop_Borealis, make sense that there is only dry dock of the Borealis. Also, I now have a lot of prop from Portal2, but how?, Portal2 engine isn't the same engine of Gmod (Half-Life 2 engine).Read more >
I'm Deckard8t88, recently appointed admin here. My aim is to do a much needed cleanup around the wiki, and refine the the site's focus.
I'd also like to change the wiki's name to give it a more "personal" touch, and so that we actually "take over" it since the wiki's name is a by default one chosen by somebody else. So I'd like to hear your opinion on this. I have some names that went through my mind. You can vote for one of them, or submit your own! After a few days we'll see what has been decided!
- Zombine UnderWiki (Some sort of opposite of the previous name, Combine OverWiki)
- Magnusson's Encyclopedia (Sounds serious and reliable!)
- Sector C (The most known BMRF sector)
- Sector D (The administration/archives BMRF sector, would suit the w…

Exploring one of the levels using the Noclip cheat, I decided to pop behind a wall panel that was sticking out. It's not part of the level, and there is no portal surfaces. You wont get there without no clip. Behind the panel, On the wall, I found this."This thing is like seeing, Only not with my eyes"
Very creepy message. Who left it there? Thoughts? Comments?
-- I cant remember what level it was, but it was the first one with the Sunlight platforms.Read more >
Hello, my name is Zombiehunter115, although you may call me ZH. I'm new here. Like, this blog is my first edit. I love the games Valve has made, but I don't intend on staying (mostly because Valve can't count higher than 2). I noticed that, dispite it being called the "Half-Life Wiki", some things for Portal were on here as well. So, forgive me if I'm wrong, I took up the asumption that ALL Valve things are on here. Again, forgive me if I'm wrong. What I am wondering is if you have a strict policy on fan fiction. Or if there's a Wikia made for Valve fan fiction. Because, I have a Portal 3 fan fiction that I'm itching to share. Please get back to me on this, and again. Sorry if I sound stupid for even THINKING of this. I just kn…Read more >
to all my dear friends, contributors and ad mins. I am solely sorry from the bottom of my half life loving heart for the neglect I have put open this wiki. There is no excuse for my lack and support and sole interest in the status and overall well being of this wiki and for the fact that I have pout no effort into this wiki or into the walkthrough I promised you for these past 2 months and I am sorry. I hope that you will forgive me and allow me to finish the walktoughs I hope you haven't finished or given up faith in. The first version will be on this wiki as soon as I can recover it from my busted hard drive and I promise it will be better than you could have ever expected. So whether you welcome me to this wiki with open arms or not, I …Read more >
A free mod for Half-Life 2, Black Mesa: Source, has been announced to finally have a release date on September 14th, 2012. Now, this won't be a complete release, but it is near finished and has been in development for 8 years, so we half-life fans should have high hopes. You can find the website with a countdown to the release here 
Me and Kat will be running a new Twitter account (since Kat forgot the password for the old one, dumb kat) that will provide News and Updates on the Half-Life series, as well as some fun distractions for fans like trivia and maybe even contests. Twitter account here: Read more >
Half-Life 3 will appear at Gamescom, according to a PDF list of videogames found on the show's website. T3 Online was the first to spot the inclusion of Half-Life 3 on the list, the game being the only one to be revealed by Valve at the show. The PDF clearly states Half-Life 3 but Gamescom's list does not that it takes 'no responsibility' for the accuracy of the information of the information, admitting that it is gathered from forums and blogs. Still a slightly odd stance from an official show. TechRadar spoke to Mike Sawh, the journalist that spotted the inclusion, who said about the find: "I was simply searching around for assets on the official Gamescom website in preparation for T3's coverage of the gaming expo, and spotted the list o…Read more >
I have an actual GAME DISC of the Dreamcast HALF-LIFE that can play on ANY Dreamcast!!
Is this an alpha, beta, final prototype, or some unique copy of the Game? Is there anyone that any information on what this is that is NOT speculation?
I have been a gamer for over 30 years and collected vintage game systems and games for about 20 years now. During the years 2002-2006, I was really into collecting all things Dreamcast. In my pursuit of all things Dreamcast, I came across the opportunity to buy HALF-LIFE for the Dreamcast! I was told it was a fully playable in any system. For a nominal fee, which I will not disclose, I could get this game. So I bit the bullet and bought thinking that the odds were fairly high it wouldn't play at all, but …

Hello everyone! This is going to be the first of many "News Blog" style thingies that you'll be seeing more and more on here. But first, the main question I'd like to ask - What do You think? The readers? The simple people just browsing around the wiki? I want to ask you what you want to have in these blogs. I want to ask you what you want us to be doing with the wiki. Please use this page as a sort of Feed back sort of thing. The content cant get better nor grow without the readers giving their input on what they want to see, so please, Start commenting on what you want to see!
I've taken a liking to the name "The Black Mesa Times". It has a nice ring to It, and I'm guessing this'll be the name of these News Blogs. Moving forward we have some upda…Read more >
There hasn't been any clear idea on the story of half-life 2 episode 3(other than you might fight an advisor). This is just an idea on what I think it could be. It starts at Eli Vance funerall. It goes along like most funerals, and it transitions to 5 years later, and the advisor that killed Eli got all of his knowledge and spilled the beans to the rest of the combine, so the resistance was falling apart. A group of vortigaunts gathered some crystals from xen and they think it could be their last hope against the combine. They activate it, but then lammar started making a sound that sounded like growling. Kleiner and barney realise that something's wrong. Before gordon could do anything, the crystals did the unthinkable... They resurrected…Read more >
Here some leaked concept art link. It seems that the leaked concept art are dating from 2008 March so its possible that many things you see in the concept art pictures will be changed in the final game.

http://thedarkdays.wikia.com/wiki/Special:WikiActivity Hello everyone, I am Jim Logan, I run a wiki Xanderdarkeye.wikia.com. Uh, it's based off a youtube series, that takes place in Half Life and is a G-Mod series thing. Um, I am really not good with speeches or anything really, I just thought it would be cool to let you guys know this. Um, questions or comments, just ask. I don't know If I should make pages about his series', since he has a lot, and I don't have permission from him to write more than his two big ones. ("The Renegade Series" and "The Dark Days").

Um, I am now requesting assistance for the wiki, such as making pages for the episodes, and movies, and assistance with coding.
I've just turned on the new navigation, but there's a problem with the number of items under "categories" and "games". The current structure is:
- Category:Quantum events|Quantums
- Category:Cut content|Cut content
- Category:Real world|Real world
- Half-Life: Opposing Force|Opposing Force
- Half-Life: Blue Shift|Blue Shift
- Half-Life: Decay|Decay
- Half-Life 2
- Half-Life 2: Episode One|Episode One
So, I've just enabled chat for this wiki. That's a bit of a risk, because there aren't any admins around at the moment to moderate it. But I figure we could give it a try anyway ;)
We could also enable the new navigation, but that might need a bit of tweaking by someone more familiar with Half-Life than me. I'll try it and see what it looks like though.
And please let me know what you think too!Read more >

"Son, I need to go to meet a old friend." Chell lightly said to her son next to her. "Ok, Mom, why are we in a desert though." Her son, Antonio asked. "Well, she's here." Chell said, opening a door to the test chamber. Then there she was, GlaDOS had millons of robot testers, it was like a portal world. Antonio only 13 noticed something. "That looks like UltrOS, the robot at the center of our city." Chell grabbed a portal gun. "Exactly." She exclaimed. "Chell? It is you, I see you have a son now... Very pleasing. Welcome to testing land. You can go now, I just wanted you gone the second time." GlaDOS said, shutting the door. "Mom, can I try that?" Antonio asked, he grabed it and shot his white shoe then the white bridge they walked on. Chel…Read more >

Fans of Half-Life 2 are cordially invited to play the game on Saturday, February 4th from 11:00AM - 11:30AM PDT (-8GMT). A huge group of Steam community members are coordinating these events in hopes of bringing people back to the community and spotlighting the game for all of its' glory. More information about this event will be announced throughout the week, and details can be found here.
I'll be making a portal 3 wishlist wiki later today. 5 gels, new portal gun, 7 gels, 130 years later, Great-Great-Grandson of Cave Johnson Named Zeddie. Those are what I want in portal 3, so what do you want? You decide on Aperture's new productsRead more >
Repulsion, Propulsion, Conversion, and...What's this?? That's right! Thanks to mods, these three gels have become the new-age laws of robotics. That is, something based on Sci-Fi, that there are three of, not counting the hundreds of extras that people have added over the years, or, year. Only two being Adhesion Gel (Makes objects stick to walls, etc.), and Electrocution Gel (I'm not sure what that does but I guess the name is informative enough), both of which are purple.
The order in which they were created is this:
Repulsion gel, which appears as a thick blue substance, and was originally made as pudding that makes you puke, is now marketed as a blue liquid that you put on your floor to turn it into a trampoline, or in other words, make …

It seems that Klow and Bramblepath are ready with the fork they announced back in July. Around that time, I emailed Klow about this wiki, and how it can and can't be changed in response to the fork. I asked him to share that email with the community, but I don't think he did that.
So, here are the details:
The main point is that It is not OK for you to use Wikia to promote an alternative service.
We've seen a few forks now, so have some guidelines to help in understanding what that means. This isn't an exhaustive list, but...
- Please do not link to your new wiki on the main page of the Wikia version. It's OK to link to a blog post about the changes, but that can't be a permanent notice
- Please make sure that any messaging clearly sa…
If you wanna see Chell in Super Smash Bros 4, please sign this petiton. I've come up with some potential moves and other stuff for Chell.
Final Smash: GLaDOS gives the opponent neurotoxin, while Chell sends the opponent to death trap portal.
Assist Trophy: Turret
Stage: GLaDOS' Lair
- Still Alive
- Want You Gone
- 4 Part Plan
- Robots FTW
- This Is The Part Where He Kills Us
There's just one small problem. If Chell's gonna be in the game, Valve needs to make a Portal game for a Nintendo console. Making a new game will take too long, so we need to convince Valve to make a port of Portal 2 for the Wii U. This petition will also cover this situation.
Here's The Petition:

Alright, I want to clear things up first: I am a wuss.
Now, let's talk about something that's been bugging me lately. Half-Life 2 is an amazing game. It's one of the best games I have ever played, and playing it with the episodes is something I would love to do more often... if it weren't for, you guessed it, the fucking zombies. I hate them. I can't goddamn stand them. Just thinking about that fast zombie.... ugh. Creepy as fuck. And that poison headcrab. GODDAMNIT GET IT AWAY FROM ME-you get the point. No, I am not Barney. I don't have a fear of all headcrabs. Just the ones HL2 added. Although the standard ones first creeped me out (I was used to the low-res Half-Life versions), I got used to them. I just can't get used to the others. If …Read more >
It kind of bugs me how people are overthinking the Portal storyline. I'm not referring to this Wiki, of course, our goal here is to analyze everything. I'm talking about things I've heard on the internet and even by people I know that look WAY to deeply into a lot of Portal 2. For instance, the whole Caroline thing. Is she Chell's mother? Does GLaDOS harbor some deep-seated love for Chell? Who the hell cares? The only thing people are getting this from are the lyrics to Cara Bel, where she is called "my daughter". But that might not even be GLaDOS talking. Another thing about Cara Bel: the fact people are looking into this at all is absurd. It's a silly cinematic made to reward you for completing the game. There's really nothing to it, and…Read more >

I just want to say that the Combine Overwiki is my favorite wiki out there, primarily because you guys don't delete everything I put up.
Also, we need to find more pictures of Wheatley as the antagonist. I've looked everywhere but can't find any. The next time one of you guys plays Portal 2, try to take some pictures of evil Wheatley.Read more >

Portal 2 just came out, but does anyone like the new end song? "Want You Gone"

Half Life: Full Life Consequences, the quadrilogy of Half Life novellas which follow the Freeman family tree, presents a post-Combine world with stark differences.
Overall, it seems that Combine rule has been reduced to collective forces controlling only metropolitan areas, as the first story shows that John Freeman is working as a scientist in an office. Not only does the Combine not have any influence, but industry, infastructure, and even internet communications have returned to the populace.
Gordon Freeman is still a prominate figure, preferring to live in hostile areas, where Xen creatures and Headcrab Zombies are still a threat. Gordon has internet communications, as he is able to send a message to John for his help.
One of the few odd …

The three Combine Wizards. Before the Advisors, the Wizards were leaders, and power-sources to all Combine Soldiers, it's how they stay alive, like Darth Vader's power source was Darth Sidious. The Combine Wizards were first known by the Soldiers by Wallace Breen, one of the administrators of Earth. The Wizards came after the Seven Hour War, and getting everything set up. When the Advisors were in action in the war, they were sent back to their world, and came back during a battle of an underground citadel. The Wizards have stored their powers in three Combine bases around Earth, one is in City 45, one is in City 18, and one is in City 0 (AKA: Main City). The Combine Wizards weren't known by any Humans until three Rebels have invaded the C…Read more >

I think my blog for this wiki will be a gaming one. I have a political-ish blog on the Monopoly Wiki too.
I love using custom skins/sounds when I play. It's so cool to look at your weapon and say, "I'm proud to be killing someone with something this stylish and well-made." I might even make a list of skins I use one day. Here's a start: my Portal skins.
